Israeli violations and attacks against farmers and agricultural lands are escalating in the northern suburbs of Ramallah.

Early August, a group of settlers who  call themselves “Sons of the hills” established a new outpost 300 m east of “Rimonim” settlement.

Reportedly, the outpost is composed of 4 tents and a water reservoir on a mountainous terrain, and inhabited by number of radical settlers.

Activist Eyad Haddad told LRC reporter:

“The new outpost’s settlers were living in “Kokhav Hashayer” outpost, but they divided themselves into groups, each group establishes an outpost at a new location, which means grabbing more Palestinian lands.

Settlers of the outposts carry out frequent attacks , as they originally immerged from  Kach movement  which considers killing Palestinian people a religious duty.”

Noteworthy, in the recent two years several sons of the hills attacks were documented , most recently attacking a farm belongs to Al-Ka’abneh family and setting it on fire , in addition to setting flames in an area of trees in Al-Mughayyir last May , this was preceded by an attack against number of farmers in April in Kafr Malik and Ein Samiya areas, in addition to sabotaging number of grapes saplings in Deir Jarir early 2019, and daily harassments.
